Born in New York in 1947, Ken Grimes grew up in Cheshire, Connecticut. When he was in his twenties, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was forced to abandon his university studies. At the end of the Vietnam War, his father, who headed an arms manufacturing company, sold his business and built a tennis center, which would become a central theme in his son’s drawings. “I think my father felt somewhat responsible for my illness, so in a way, he wanted to be involved,” Grimes explained.
